Levi loves to cook with me in the kitchen, so it’s no surprise that’s one of his favorite pretend play activities, too.
Little Tikes has long been a go-to brand in our house for encouraging Levi to use his imagination. In fact, the dollhouse I bought him a couple years ago is a classic Little Tikes model. Their play sets are open-ended and encourage pretend play, which is something I can really get behind.
Levi also has a Little Tikes play kitchen, so we already had plenty of play food on hand when they sent me the Backyard Barbecue™ Get Out ‘n' Grill set. It’s a kid’s version of a classic grill that can be used inside or outside. If you don’t already have play food at your house, don’t worry. The grill comes with a hamburger, hot dog, buns, and play utensils. It even includes a (play) bottle of ketchup.
The great thing about this play set is that it’s relatively small and compact. You can use the cabinet under the grill for storage space, which makes it really easy for Levi to help with clean up time. He knows that all of the food and accessories need to get put away when we’re done playing.
You can find the Little Tikes toy grill barbecue set online or at most major toy retailers like Toys R Us, Target, and Walmart. It retails for about $39.99 and is a great value if you’re looking for a compact play kitchen type of toy. It’s also a great expansion for an existing toy kitchen set, or as a freestanding outdoor toy (though for obvious safety reasons, don’t put it anywhere near your real outdoor grill.)
